Catching up…better late, than never!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I got the cyst on my head removed for the THIRD time. They had to cut deeper and I got 7 stitches. Holy headache, the next day. It was not fun, but I survived with Tylenol, ice, and a heating pad. I’ll spare you the pics since it’s super gross. My dermatologist says it should not come back so here’s hoping!
  • 1 Day of PT. Lots of cranial work because of so much head pain (see above).
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Trying to get all the cardio in I can get outside before it’s way too cold.

Friday the 13th!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. A lot of rib OMM and cranial work after cardio and strengthening.
  • I’ve been doing various Beachbody exercise programs and I like the variety. I am figuring out how to modify as I go. So far, I have done 21 Day Fix Cardio, 21 Day Fix Pilates, and PiYO Sweat.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had a procedure done yesterday where I had to be put under. It went well. I am just SORE today, but will be back in action soon. Meanwhile I am getting in some good sleep and a lot of one-on-one time with my heating pad. HOT.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I am celebrating by pretending my Miralax/Gatorade mixture is a Margarita! Oh, EDS, you are so fun sometimes!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. The usual.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. The usual.
  • Still navigating our new insurance. It feels like a full time job at times. Ugh.
  • I saw my OMT doc. My ribs and head needed much love. Our goal was to get me headache free before I left. I did feel better so I took that as a win.
